Pupils put on Easter concert for care home residents

Posted on 21 April 2011

People paying for care in Swindon were treated to an Easter concert by pupils from a nearby school.

Schoolchildren of the Commonweal Junior Choir sang at Princess Lodge Care Centre on Currie Avenue in a seasonal concert, reports the Swindon Advertiser.

The residents were also presented with daffodils and Easter cards made by the students.

Community arts development officer Josie Williams told the newspaper: "The students really enjoyed themselves. The residents also enjoyed joining in with some of the songs, it was really nice to see both generations enjoying themselves."

Nursing home residents paying for care in Edinburgh have also been celebrating Easter with the younger generation, reports carehome.co.uk.

The students from Drummond Community High School helped residents to concoct Easter bonnets, colour in Easter eggs and partake in other springtime games.

Pupils from the school have been visiting the care home for the past year and the Easter celebrations came as a part of this project.
